500ml Bottle. Its aroma is of sweet fruits and floral notes. It pours a golden amber with a fast fading white head. Its taste is a lot blander than you would expect given the aroma. It fact theres very little there except water and a dry bitter finish. Not a lot to write home about on this one - drinkable but lacking in flavour and character.

Bottle from Home Bargains. After a day tasting some really nice beers in Glasgow I came home to this and was brought quickly back down to earth. Aroma of sugar and malt. Taste much the same. Too bubbly, too sweet, too boring. If this is an IPA then it’s like no other I’ve tasted. Only positive is the price. Avoid!

wimpyjoe (3972) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons, Salford. Golden with a disappearing frothy head. Its strength is immediately evident, and whilst there’s some pale ale texture, it does not have much flavour or character. Slightly floral nose.

Ferris (4339) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle - Skunky and sweet grains. Clear gold with a decent white head. A little floral and biscuity malts with a light earthy hop. Still a bit too sweet.

MichaelAwesome (4128) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Quite a simple one with some nuts, bit of malt and some hops. Easily drinkable until that bitter ends hits you really tough. Well, you have got to like it. I did not. Therefore - average.

Bottle from local Morrisons in Newport / IOW. Pours out in a clear amber colour with low head and medium to flat body. Aroma of malt and barley. Taste of mild hops, malt, barley, bread, spruce and herbs. Light acid finish. Didn’t really enjoy it.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle in South Shields. Pours clear Amber Broon with a White head. Caramel and alittle bit of hops. A fairly boring bitter. You couldn’t squint your eyes and call it an IPA. "A smooth and floral British classic" - LOL.
